K64 Burnis Sprite.png Burnis is a phoenix-like enemy seen in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, often flying around warm, volcanic regions. While flying, they drop pellets of fire made only to injure Kirby, and provide him with the Burn copy ability when ingested. Burnis resembles a baby chick, except that its entire body consists of fire, save for its beak and eyes. Burnis will usually move back and forth over a set area, dropping fire at random intervals or at Kirby if he is near. It does not pursue Kirby actively and will merely continue along its path with no regard for his location. Their icy counterpart is Frigis.

A large Burnis appears as a Mid-Boss in Stage 4 of Shiver Star. This Burnis flies back and forth through pipes in the wall and continuously drops burning embers. It takes several hits to defeat.


Burnis can be found in the following levels and stages:
